Project Challenges & Solutions

Environmentally Sensitive Area

To reduce the risk of storm water releases in the area, sediment basin and erosion controls were installed and stabilized prior to starting work on the remainder of the site.

Weather Challenges

Multiple hurricanes impacted the site creating severe weather challenges. Trans Ash responded to weather delays by working extended hours and utilizing additional, specialized equipment to dry the subgrade material and maintain schedule.

Tight Tolerances

Trans Ash used self-performed licensed site surveys and our GPS controlled equipment fleet to achieve the design grades and tolerances required in the specifications.
